OL were so pleased with the former Manchester United forward's first goal for the club that they are preserving the evidence in the club's history

It's easy to get excited when a new signing scores his first goal for your team. There's excitement, but then there's putting the player's shirt into a museum.

WATCH: Memphis opens Lyon account

That's exactly what Lyon are doing for Memphis Depay, who scored his first goal for the French side since leaving Manchester United when he came off the bench in a 4-0 win over Nancy on Wednesday.

Lyon are clearly delighted to have Memphis in the squad and hope his strike will be the first of many after a January transfer that could rise to £21.7 million. So delighted, in fact, that they opted to preserve his shirt from the game.

The goal came on Memphis fourth appearance for the Ligue 1 side, five minutes after he had won a penalty which Alexandre Lacazette converted for Lyon's third of the evening.

The Holland international, who had replaced the injured Mathieu Valbuena before half-time, was then set up by Maxime Gonalons to open his account.
